Iacobo’s biggest strength might be his superior mobility in the crease, as he his in full control of his feet. He moves with no restriction laterally or vertically, from post to post, and his mobility allows him to make consecutive leg saves when needed. However, his puck awareness is questionable, and it seems sometimes that the pace of play is too much to handle for the young goaltender. He has a hard time to keep track of the puck, whether it’s in front of him of behind the net and may cause him to arrive late on plays or allowing bad goals. He needs to improve how he presents himself on one-on-one situations. He is not square to the shooter and he is down on his knees way too early, putting himself into vulnerable situations and out of position.  He doesn’t seem to own his crease, and his positioning is questionable on many occasions. He also needs to work on his confidence, especially after allowing bad goals, which happens often. Most of his bad goals allowed seem to stem from weak puck awareness skills and a lack of confidence and concentration. He is currently not skilled enough to steal the big games away and would be a long-term project. If any team takes a chance on him, they will need to set minimum expectations and give him a lot of seasoning in the minors before they can see any tangible results. Patience will be key with Iacobo.
